Work on grain-sized microbatteries by Harvard researchers has been honored by the printed electronics industry. According to the Academic R&D Award citation from the IDTechEx Printed Electronics USA 2013 event, "these microbatteries occupy volumes less than 1mm3 -- equivalent in size to a single grain of sand -- and are 1,000 times smaller than the smallest commercially available rechargeable batteries. The university is working on developing these batteries for a range of autonomous applications, including biomedical devices, micro-UAVs and distributed sensor arrays (e.g., smart dust)."
